On Friday 8th October 2021, after an enforced break due to Covid, the annual Durrants charity clay shoot was held in its usual beautiful surroundings of the water meadows and farmland of Red House Farm, St Margaret- South Elmham by kind permission of Mr Philip Kidner.
Once again this popular event was run to raise funds for the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution, a national charity that provides local support to farming communities across England and Wales.
Blessed with wonderful weather, fourteen teams came together to shoot two 100-bird flushes, kindly provided by local gunsmiths A Richardson & Sons of Halesworth. BBQ and refreshments were available throughout the day.
Once shooting had ceased, scores were checked and double checked with the winners being announced by Nick Durrant, from Durrants. The winners were James Griffiths and his team from Griffiths and Taylor Structural Engineers.
Dominic Parravani managing director from Durrants said “The day has been a great success. It’s lovely to be back after missing last year’s event.”
The final figure for the funds raised is still to be confirmed, but 100% of proceeds will be donated to RABI.
